The open source course management system, Moodle, is designed to help instructors deliver course materials to their students from a social constructivist perspective. This study evaluates the usability of Moodle based on the perceptions of 189 professors and 1867 students at the American University of Beirut. Participants were invited to participate in an online survey reflecting the performance of the system in teaching and learning by rating a set of 30 items related to five usability attributes: Learnability, Efficiency, Memorability, Error Prevention, and Satisfaction. Besides testing the usability attributes and evaluating the course management system, the study aims to attest the open source software quality at academic institutions in the Middle East region.
